Blue Cheese Flank Steak Recipe

Blue Cheese Flank Steak Recipe

While having a house built, we lived with my parents for a few months and I pilfered through my mother's recipe files. One of the many treasures I collected is this tasty, economical steak. —Laurie Nudo, The Woodlands, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and sliced
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 beef flank steak (1 pound)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first six ingredients. Add the steak; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.
  • 3. Grill beef, covered, over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  • 4. Let stand for 5 minutes; thinly slice across the grain. Sprinkle with blue cheese. Yield: 4 servings.
